Manchester United lead chase for Arsenal ‘Reject’ Defender

share on:

Manchester United have moved back in front of Barcelona in the chase to sign Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen.

Barcelona looked to have taken pole position in the race to sign the 28-year-old Belgium international on Tuesday when they made a bid of £10million for the player.

360nobs understand that United are Vermaelen’s preferred destination and the Old Trafford club will have no problem matching or beating Barca’s offer.
Vermaelen’s future at Arsenal has been the subject of speculation all summer, with the centre-back entering the final year of his contract at the Emirates.

He is no longer first choice for the Gunners, with boss Arsene Wenger preferring the centre-back pairing of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny last season.
